I once had a call from a frustrated patient. It was during our grand opening (or pre-opening) promotion time, when we have had the lowest price for ICSI/IVF in the UAE according to my knowledge. He had spent some thousands of dirhams more than he had anticipated initially, despite us being very transparent about our prices and what is included in the packages and what is not.
Our dialogue over the phone went something like the following:
Patient: We are not very rich, we didn’t know that the bill would come to this price. We have taken a credit loan for this procedure. We really want to have a baby.
Me: You know, sir, I probably shouldn’t be saying this as a business director… but as a person to person… I don’t think IVF is something you should take a loan for.
Patient: Well, sir, with all due respect, it is not up to you to decide.
It was his life, his choice to make, and his responsibility to carry.
However, it is commonly known, that IVF success rates are 40% on average. To put in simpler terms, 50% is either “yes” or “no”; 40% is more probably “no” than “yes”.
A heart-breaking story, indeed.
I’d spoken to Dr. Amal herself about it. She nodded in agreement with my concern. Although, what else could we do for the couple, other than provide them with a World-class healthcare with the best IVF equipment in the country?
Fast forward a few months.
